Robotic Assistance Devices, Inc. (RAD), Secures Order Totaling 13 Devices from Single Client at One Location
Detroit, Michigan, April 18, 2023 — Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions, Inc., (the “Company”) (OTCPK:AITX), a global leader in AI-driven security and productivity solutions along with its wholly owned subsidiary, Robotic Assistance Devices, Inc. (RAD), today announced that it has received an order for 11 ROSA security robots and 2 AVA access control solutions. The order was facilitated by one of RAD’s largest national authorized dealers.
The end-user client is a Fortune 250-ranked supplier of technology-driven solutions that empower the global energy industry. All 13 devices are to be deployed at one of the client’s large warehousing centers, tasked with the detection and deterrence of trespassing, loitering and other security breaches. One of the two AVA units will replace a security guard at a secure entrance gate and the entire system has the equivalent value in human labor in the range of $400,000 to $600,000 annually. The remaining AVA unit will supplement the tasks of a security guard at another gated entrance to the facility.
The company announced that it expects the full 13-unit order to be delivered to the project site by the end of April 2023 and noted that it continued to make significant progress satisfying backlogged orders. It’s expected that RAD will begin invoicing this deployment in May or June.
“Our progress with this particular nationwide dealer has been substantial and barely unlocks the potential we have together,” said Mark Folmer, CPP, FSyI, President of RAD. “We’re very grateful for the strong national representation and excited at nation-wide roll out plans that are nearing completion.”
“Enterprise organizations see immediate and substantial impact when they integrate RAD’s solutions into their facility and security plans,” said Steve Reinharz, CEO of AITX and RAD. “As the market for security guard labor continues to tighten, I expect we’ll see acceleration of RAD solutions.”
The Company expects to make additional announcements regarding its authorized dealers’ activities and further sales updates.
ROSA is a multiple award-winning, compact, self-contained, portable, security and communication solution that can be deployed in about 15 minutes. Like other RAD solutions, it only requires power as it includes all necessary communications hardware. ROSA’s AI-driven security analytics include human, firearm, vehicle detection, license plate recognition, responsive digital signage and audio messaging, and complete integration with RAD’s software suite notification and autonomous response library. Two-way communication is optimized for cellular, including live video from ROSA’s dual high-resolution, full-color, always-on cameras. RAD has published three Case Studies detailing how ROSA has helped eliminate instances of theft, trespassing and loitering at car rental locations and construction sites across the country.
AVA (Autonomous Verified Access) is a compact and stanchion mountable unit that provides an edge-to-edge 180° field of vision with advanced access control over gates and other controlled points of entry. AVA takes full advantage of the RAD Software Suite providing an ideal solution for gated communities, logistics and distribution centers, storage yards, parking structures and lots, corporate campuses; anywhere that increased security and visibility is needed at a fraction of the cost. At ISC West 2022, AVA was named a winner of the SIA New Products and Solutions Awards in the category of Access Control Software, Hardware, Devices and Peripherals.
